About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is, and grandparents were amazing cooks. A family tradition is Sauerbraten sometime over the Christmas holidays. My dad's stuffing recipe, passed down from his dad, riced potatoes, Mom's amazing array of Christmas cookies, and wholesome, simple, but terrific food are all traditions passed down to me and my sisters.

Sour Cream Torte
I made this for dessert for Christmas dinner at my sister's house. I made it about 30 hours ahead of the time we served it and it was wonderful. I did have a bit of difficulty getting seven 9" cookies out of the recipe, but I was able to make it work. Next time I might try 8" cookies instead. In any event, I followed the recipe exactly, except I did use half low-fat sour cream and half regular. I also decorated the serving plate and the top of the torte with sugared cranberries and green decorating frosting to resemble holly berries and leaves. Pretty on the "snow" of the powdered sugar. This got raves from all, and I personally loved it.
